Ahead of the release of Emma next week in the UK and the following week in North America, Focus Features appears to be set to debut the first trailer for a new film titled The High Note, which has been rated today by Alberta Film Ratings.
Chasing down the film on Universal and Focus Features slates, as well as social media, points this to being a new title for Covers, the follow-up project for Late Night director Nisha Ganatra, produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner ( who arealso behind Emma). Expect this footage to arrive online in the next two weeks, and we’ll be sure to have any updates here as they come in… UPDATE: The full press release from the distributor’s acquisition of Kajillionaire out of Sundance confirms the new title.
A comedy set among the talent, fame, and fast-paced world of Hollywood’s music scene.
Starring Dakota Johnson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Kelvin Harrison, Jr and Ice Cube, the film is released May 8 in the U.S., and the UK.
